Captain and wicket-keeper batsman Rohail Nazir was the top-scorer for Pakistan with 62 while opener Haider Ali scored 56. Sushant Mishra scalped a three-for for India while Kartik Tyagi and Ravi Bishnoi picked a couple of wickets apiece.
India will either play New Zealand or Bangladesh in the final slated to take place in Potchefstroom on Sunday. This would be India’s third final on the trot. They lost to West Indies in 2016 but defeated Australia in 2018 to lift the cup.
